Good Books: Survival Lessons from Alice Hoffman

Alice Hoffman, author of more than a dozen great novels, plus books for younger readers, recently published her first nonfiction work, Survival Lessons, inspired by her own life and the lives of those around her.  It was a perfect book for me to pick up recently, when I was a bit weary from travelling too much, and she has good words on several topics related to aging. 

At the start of the book, she provides a lovely epigram.  I don't think it is giving away too much to repeat it here: 

There is always a before and an after.

       My advice, travel light.

Choose only what you need most

         to see you through.
